Questions and answers

What is a body lift?

Body lifting or circumferential body lifting is a plastic surgery performed to remove sagging flesh or loose skin and restore the aesthetic appearance of the different body zones (abdomen, waist, buttocks).

During the body lifting complex, plastic surgeons tighten the abdomen, eliminate abdominal separation (diastasis recti), perform thigh and lower back liposuction, carry out buttock lift and enlargement (with patient’s own tissues or implants).

What are the indications for body lift?

Both women and men are good candidates for body lifting if they have:

  • sagging skin after significant weight loss
  • reduced elasticity of abdomen muscles
  • flabby buttocks 
  • drooping skin of the abdomen and buttocks.
  • inelastic skin of the lower back and chest.

What are the contraindications?

Like any other plastic surgery, a body lift has some contraindications:

  • blood clotting problems
  • exacerbation of chronic diseases
  • heart failure
  • uncompensated type II diabetes
  • mental health disorders
  • obesity with a BMI of 35 and higher
  • autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis)
  • immunodeficiency
  • smoking. 

What are the types of body lifting in Mexico?

Body lift is a complex of the cosmetic procedures aimed at correcting one or several body areas (breast, waist, buttocks, etc.). According to the body zone need to be corrected, body plastic surgery in Mexico includes such types of lifting procedures as:

The operations may be combined and performed during the same process. In some cases, plastic surgeons carry out body lift in tandem with liposuction to remove not only excess skin but also excess fat simultaneously.

What is preparation for the surgery?

Body lifting in Mexico is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery requires the patient to get the necessary medical tests and examinations. Among them are:

  • complete blood count
  • coagulogram (blood clotting test)
  • immunoglobulins blood test 
  • biochemical profile
  • Rh factor blood test
  • urinalysis
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • lower limbs venous ultrasonography
  • the chest X-ray
  • consultation with a therapist
  • consultation with a plastic surgeon.

What is the body lifting process?

Consultation with your plastic surgeon is required before body lifting. During the consultation, a plastic surgeon will evaluate your body shape, help you understand what result you can expect, take into account your preferences, and develop a complete surgery plan.

Body lift in Mexico is a minimally invasive surgery and usually is performed by several steps:

  1. A plastic surgeon marks certain body zones that need to be corrected and review the surgery plan again to make sure you get the desired result after the procedure. 
  2. Body lifting is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the number of areas, the operation takes 4-6 hours
  3. A surgeon makes the incisions and separates the skin and the fat layer from the underlying tissues. 
  4. A plastic surgeon closes the incisions.

How does the body lift process change depending on the body area?

Performing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a cosmetic specialist removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat of the abdomen tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. To avoid possible complications and reduce fluid accumulation, a plastic surgeon measures the drainage. 

Excess skin in the thigh region (thigh lift) is removed by a longitudinal incision on the inner thigh or a horizontal incision on the outer thigh. The cuts are quite long, but they are usually not visible under clothing. During the operation, a surgeon can also perform a butt lift to correct the shape of the buttocks. 

Brachioplasty or arm lift is carried out to eliminate sagging skin and excess adipose tissue from the upper inner surface of the shoulder. Usually, the incision goes from the armpit to the elbow. If the patient has fat accumulation in the shoulder area without excess skin, plastic surgeons perform lipo to suck out excess fat.

How long is the recovery period after body lifting in Mexico?

Patients usually spend a night or two in the hospital after a body lift in Mexico. The next day they start walking. To reduce swelling and discomfort, specialists recommend making compresses with cold water or ice. Drainage is removed a few days after the surgery.

A few days after the procedure, patients should stay at home. Taking a shower is possible only on the third day after body lifting in Mexico. Physical activity is permitted for 6-8 weeks after the surgery. 

The terms of the rehabilitation period are different depending on the type of operation. After all body lift types, it is necessary to wear a compression garment for at least 4 weeks. 

The surgery is minimally invasive and does not cause severe pain. During the first days after the procedure, the patient may feel discomfort and tension. To eliminate this feeling, doctors prescribe postoperative treatment consisting mainly of painkillers and antibiotics.

During the postoperative period, the patient should remain under the supervision of a doctor. Follow-up examinations are necessary not only after the operation but also in the long term (one month, six months, and a year after the operation).

What are the body lift risks?

As any other plastic surgery, body lifting can lead to some complications. The most common among them are:

  • infection
  • seroma (fluid accumulation under the skin)
  • hematoma (bleeding)
  • scar contracture
  • implant displacement
  • blood clots
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • swelling
  • persistent pain.

To avoid complications after the body lift surgery, you must choose a highly-qualified plastic surgeon, pass medical tests and examinations, and accurately follow all the doctor’s recommendations.
